going to happen over the weekend. like anyone who spent a lot of team in these waters, i was worried that combination of big swells and rip currents and hurricane harvey and hurricane maria offshore, warm weather would lure swimmers, and the lack of lifeguards could lead to tragedy, over week three people drowning here over th the week. in new jersey, scores of others pulled from waters, by water rescue teams, lifeguards police and good sa samaritans. >> under scoring need for more education and awareness on rip currents, the surfers have a unusual understanding of these, in a weird way, the rip currents are our friends, you notice that surfers paddle out alongside the jetties, because of the rip currents there. they are powerful and it is fruit less and pointless to
fight gain it, they take you to calmer weather. it is the panic that really dooms swimmers. >> a ran into surfer former lifeguard evan, who gave us a quick display. >> i'm using the rip current, that will directly suck me out, once i am out, i will paddle parallel to the rip to get out of it. >> you can see him watch this suck him right out. there he goes. like an elevator to the 10th floor. >> swells from maria coming in 10-12 feet, thankful gray weather and on set of workweek have people heeding advice of those red flags. and down the beach, staying out of the water, brian donohue for "chasing news." bill: here is a look at headlines tonight. >> protester in washington, d.c., stage a die in, in

>> reporting for "chasing news." bill: thank you. >> i want to bring back our a-plus panel, all political strategist, justin with back with us. janette, and andre. andre, starting with you. hillary is back. i think it looks like someone who either a has not into the gotten over the fact she laughter oxi-- shelaughte lost. or is going to run again. >> would you support her. >> too early. bill: justin. you know, i hear sounds like democrats are making a lot of excuses for the fact they ran one of the worst campaigns. >> i think there is a big
difference between reasons and excuses, party should do what it needs to do to make sure we know what went wrong. there is tactical reasons that we might have lost some states, but well no reason she it be out of the conversation. bill: i have not read the book, have you? >> no. bill: jan netted het. >> no. she is so politically tone deaf she said in "time" magazine, the reason she did not win vote of majority of white women, because when she was under investigation of james comey, the husbands said don't vote for her that is sexist. >> the second that president stops speaking about hillary clinton, and he stops tweeting
about her. maybe she should go away. >> she is showing the divide of democratic party. bill: an redo you agree. >> nobody divides anyone more than the president united states, it is baffling that thinks that white women don't vote for her , what is more baffling they chose to vote for a open racist. >> hillary kept talking about herself, she made the campaign about herself, and donald trump made it about the economy. about making america great again, then proving the problem we have in the country. bill: is this typical talking points, everyone who does not agree must be a racist? >> no, this is not about that. but like let's look at history of things he has done with housing. housing gentrification in brooklyn and nfl, taking issue talking about civil rights, and making it radio. >radio.
>> standing up for our flag. >> it's not about the flag. >> it about the flag, you are kneeling in front of the flag, you are making it about the flag. >> you are protesting civil injustice and racial inequality it has been happening for years, and protests about the american flag is not a new one by collin kaepernick. >> i don't think it is about the protest, i think it is the way they are protesting, disrespecting servicemen and women in the country. >> what is appropriate way to protest. >> john mccain said was not a war hero, everyone here in this -- >> bill: >> i disagree with nfl, and they are making this about the american flag, star spangled banner and men and women that fight for country. bill: live this, we started this about hillary, did hillary weigh in at all about this? >> she is onboard. >> shih weighe she waidz weighet is focuses on the nfl issues.
bill: are you going to read the book? >> i will buy and read the book. bill: all right, i would rather not spend money on buying it but i do' to read it. >> all right, where is my bus? why is it not on time? a question that commuter ask, the port authority announced they will have new plans for a bus terminal, not in jersey, they decided that 3 plus billion dollar project, put it right where old one is. what do you think? andre? seems that you talk about a port authority bus terminal that cost excess of 3 billion dollars, i don't know how a new building would make a bus run on time. >> i think some of the switches and some of the infrastructure are ut dated, not necessarily a matter of where you put it. as long as there is some sort of cost saving measure in there.
bill: this seems to be a waste of money, our general manager, has suggested that you put bus terminal in the meadowland, you and build a tunnel, connection the train. >> absolutely, that makes sense to me. but, i don't know what port authority is thinking they can't get their act together, they keep opposing different sides. then no, we need to do in in the javet and, then they no, that terrible. >> why not get rid of port authority? the whole idea of a bi-state agency. why not just federalize it and get these two governors and these administrations out of it, it is all patronage. >> bill, i am surprised you are asking to federalize going. i know your politics. port authority has been useful inur our history.
bill: corrupt, look at bore ownyy -- they need to happen. as much as i like infrastructure improvement happen in new jersey, i think my main priority as son of a mother and father who took bus to new york every day is a one-seat trip. a one-seat trip is mostly most important thing. bill: one seat. helpful for folks in manhattan to eleaveiate the congestion. >> thank you. >> check in with meteorologist dan zarrow with your weather. >> looking at your local weather forecast. we continue to see really two big stories in weather department, maria, still churning up the atlantic ocean. the rough surf along coast. it will continue through tonight, and wednesday, and
probably thursday as well. until maria moves far enough away that ma maria calms down. >> and second story, it still feels like summer, thursday is our transition day z cooler air arrives in. a different weather scene for weekend. and forecast for tonight, partly cloudy sky, maybe patchy fog. and lows to upper 60s. has been par for the course, one more day with widespread 80s in forecast for wednesday. it will be cooler on the coast. i see a mix of sun, clouds and i don't want to rule out a few rain drops, a shower or sprink the old coast as outer bans of maria lap up toward us, thursday, wind picks up without of the north west, causing to us get cooler, dryer, highs thursday mid to upper 70s, and friday lower certains low 70s, e

catastrophic storm that wiped out puerto rico, as millions there are suffering and struggling. i want to say a couple things, i think that president trump and administration have done a outstanding job. remember this not about politics, this is about an overwhelming response when people are in peril. water is getting there, food is getting there medical supplies, generators, tarp. 4,000 members of national guard, for all political criticism, let's face it, you heard it earlier, president trump got criticized for going to haverty early, now for not going to puerto rico. reality circumstance w is, we dd politician on the ground, we need medicine, doctors, food and water. that is getting where is needs to go, keep the politics out
